Indie title A Hat In Time could be coming to the Wii U, according to its developer Jonas Kærlev, also known as Mecha the Slag.

The game is a homage to the N64 adventures of old, such as Donkey Kong 64 and Conker's Bad Fur Day. It's currently slated for a release on PC and Mac, and is expected to provide around five hours of play. Given the short nature of the experience, we're guessing that if it is bound for Nintendo's new console, it will be headed for the Wii U eShop.

Speaking to Nintendo Everything, Kærlev said:

Without making any promises, I think it will be likely that the game ends up on the Wii U. I have been in touch with a publisher that is interested in putting it on that console, and I’d be more than interested in seeing that happen!

You can check out the game's cel-shaded visuals — which make it look a lot like The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker — by feasting your eyes on the video below. More videos are available here.
